Zucchini Crepes Recipe

"By keeping a few of these tender well-stuffed crepes in the freezer, I can easily reheat them when vegetarian friends stop by unexpectedly," writes Patricia Moyer of Island, Pond, Vermont. "Plus, they're a great way to use up extra zucchini."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded and squeezed dry
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped and seeded
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups meatless spaghetti sauce

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, eggs, egg substitute, milk and salt until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Heat an 8-in. nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray; pour about 1/4 cup batter into center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, coat with cooking spray as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • 3. In a large skillet, saute the onion, green pepper and mushrooms in oil until tender. Add zucchini; saute 2-3 minutes longer. Remove from the heat; stir in tomatoes, 1 cup of cheese, salt, oregano and pepper.
  • 4. Spoon onto crepes and roll up. Arrange in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spread spaghetti sauce over crepes.
  • 5. Cover and bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.
